Skiibii grew up in the Surulere district of Lagos, where she was born. He was born on 5 July 1992. He is a native of Nigeria’s Lagos State.
Skiibii means “a bright and intelligent guy” in English. He claims that when he was younger, his uncle called him “Omo to Skiibii,” When he asked what the phrase meant, he replied that it told “a keen and intellectual person.” So this is how he got the moniker.
He earned a mass communication bachelor’s degree from the University of Ado Ekiti (Now known as Ekiti State University). The choices Skiibii has taken have always made life simpler for him. His selection of music is unmatched, and switching record labels was the best thing he could have done.
Skiibii began his musical career as a rapper in high school before transitioning to R&B.
Information about Skiibii’s Family has not been readily available to the media by the Superstar; as such, not much is known.
Information about his parents is scarce online, and the media only knows what he has been liberal enough to share.
When Skiibii informed his parents of his career choice, he encountered several difficulties. First, his father opposed his son from producing music or engaging in musical pursuits. But he persisted and persuaded.
If Skiibii has siblings -or not is not everyday News to the media as the Superstar does an excellent job of keeping personal information out of the press.
Skiibii isn’t a father to any children yet, though he would look into that when the time feels right.
Skiibii began his musical career in Lagos while still a secondary school student. First, he was a rapper, but because singing was so prominent, he changed to it. His father, who at the time openly expressed his disgust and disdain for his son’s career choice, wasn’t happy with his decision to pursue music. Skiibii eventually won his father’s support and endorsement for his choice of profession.
He continued by revealing that he chose the stage name Skiibii and that “Mayana” is a Spanish word that implies tomorrow or the future.
When Nigerian business billionaire E-Money and his brother, singer-songwriter Kcee, signed Skiibii to the record company “Five Star Music” on 24 December 2014, Skiibii’s career took off. He was given a brand-new 2014 Hyundai SUV as part of the agreement. Before signing, he had connections to Kcee, the head of Five Star Music, going back to when he was still dating Presh.
Skiibii’s debut song for Five Star Music, “Stay With Me,” featuring his record label partner Kcee, was released on 21 January. He was also a part of Chimbalin’s famous song “Kilimanjaro.”
On 29 August 2015, he allegedly faked his death to pull off a hoax. In 2015, Skiibii was falsely declared dead, and obituary photos flooded social media, supporting the tale. After revealing his survival to his supporters, he accused management of spreading false information and promised to hold the manager accountable. A few days later, his Manager, Soso Soberenko, was sacked. Naturally, his supporters were not pleased, but the deed was done in that he became more famous.
Four years after releasing a few tracks through Five Star Music, Skiibii formally quit the label in January 2018 to start his title, More Grace Music World.
“Sensima,” a song starring Skiibii’s closest buddy in the music business, Reekado Banks, was released in October 2018 and became his first massively successful single. Just a few days before his house rent expires, Skiibii admitted in an interview with Pulse Nigeria that he had spent his rent to film the music video for “Sensima.”
Since its debut, the music video has had over 53 million views on YouTube. Additionally, he revealed that in the first three months of its release, the song “Sensima” brought in about 15 million Naira for him.
Since then, Skiibii has proceeded to release banger after banger, expanded his brand, and even caught Chris Brown’s notice. Chris followed Skiibii on Instagram while still following people on Instagram and face-timed him. On 26 November 2021, Skiibii released his first work, the “God Is Greater Than Man” EP. Seven songs were on the EP.
His most well-known collaboration with Davido, “Baddest Boy,” has elevated him to the top of the afrobeat music charts.
Skiibii is regarded as one of Nigeria’s most fashionable musicians thanks to his style.
Skibbi was in a well-publicized relationship with Actress Dorcas Shola Fapson, also known as Ms. DSF, but it didn’t live up to the hype as the duo had an ugly eight months later break-up and a back-and-forth on social media, trading blame in 2022.
He is currently Single.
He is estimated to be worth over $1 Million.
He is known to own choice vehicles. He holds a Lexus GX 460, a Toyota Land Cruiser Prado, a Mercedes Benz Maybach GLS 6000, a Rolls Royce Wraith, and a Lamborghini Aventador.
Skiibii resides in the Highrise area of Lagos as he dedicated his house a few years back with a post on social media too to celebrate it.
His outlook on creating fantastic music was altered entirely when he joined the Five Star Music family. He once faked his death to get popularity, yet he has shown music fans that he is a significant player in the business despite this.
He quit Five Star Music in 2017 to start his production firm, More Grace Music World, where he finished recording his debut album. The most current song from Skiibii, Sensima, is a safe choice with fresh sounds quickly gaining popularity. In this interview, he talks about his music and goals for the future.
After gaining notoriety, Skiibii has been releasing songs left and right, and his star-studded Collabo, “Daz How Stars Do” with Falz, Teni, and DJ Neptune, won’t be soon forgotten neither will the “Baddest Boy” remix with Davido too.
